Revolution in Manufacturing

There have been two Charlie Bess EDS Blog posts on manufacturing in the last few days that have struck me as leading indicators of significant change. One suggests some implications for nano-manufacturing. The other highlights personalized manufacturing. Indeed, here is a podcast of MIT's Neil Gershenfeld on this same subject.

Once we get to the point of "personalized nano-manufacturing" this world will truly be a different place--from clothes to utensils to toys to work. Imagine designing a diamond coated razor that never gets dull, or bio-degradable micro-bots that clean the cholesterol out of arteries. Please pass the bacon!

There were two other post related to that as well, on the economy of abundance and then on a single molecule nano-car at Rice University.
Interesting stuff.
